Laser Training

Monday 2 to Friday 6 August 2021


RSYC will be running a week of Laser Training again this Summer.* This will be our 6th year and for the 4th year running we have been able to secure the services of Ben Kimbell, an experienced and senior RYA coach, who will be running the coaching with support from another qualified RYA instructor. 

For those who have not done this event before, it is a fun and relaxed week of high quality coaching in a non-racing set up. It is a great introduction to anyone wanting to learn how to sail a Laser properly, and has proved very popular with junior and youth level sailors transitioning on from Oppies, Picos and other junior classes.  This week is the week before Dinghy Week, so the perfect opportunity to train and practice some skills before putting them into practice.
We plan to run two groups, a “transition” group for those moving to Lasers from Oppies or Picos, and an intermediate level group for those with some experience already in a Laser. Sailors will need to have their own boat for the week. (RSYC has a small number of Lasers that can be hired out on a daily basis to members for a small fee. You should contact the RSYC Sailing Secretary, Jojo Minchin. Tel 01983 760256). There will be a maximum of 12 sailors per day.
Provisionally, Monday and Wednesday will be transition group days, Tuesday and Thursday will be intermediate group days and Friday will be a mixture of some fun racing - maybe even some team racing! However, the coaches may change the days around to take account of weather conditions
The cost will be £50 for a full day or £25 for a half day. Payment to be made to Lucy Bradley in cash in advance or by the first morning. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, secured when payment is received.
If you would like your sailor to participate, please click here to complete and return an Entry Form. Any questions, please contact either Nick on 07712 580326 or Lucy on 07703 181492. Please note that sailors under 18 will need to complete this Parental Consent Form.
We would like some parental support for RIB support boat duties. Please can you indicate on the attached form if you are able to supply, drive or crew a RIB, on any of the days.

Once we have an idea of numbers we will send out a further email with joining details, registration etc.
* This is obviously subject to any further COVID restrictions that may apply, but is on the assumption we will be able to go ahead on 2nd August.
With best wishes
Nick and Lucy Bradley
